Aims and Scope: Indian Geotechnical Journal

The Indian Geotechnical Journal (IGJ) is published quarterly by the Indian Geotechnical Society in association with Springer (India). Indian Geotechnical Society was originally called The Indian National Society of Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering and was established in the year 1948, soon after the Second International Conference on Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering held at Rotterdam.

  • Indian Geotechnical Journal (IGJ) has a long history of 40 years of distinguished service and is one of the earliest journals in the world to contribute to Geotechnical Engineering research and practice.
  • It has an excellent visibility as well as broad coverage & subscribed and read with considerable interest in many traditional, historic and reputed schools of Civil Engineering
  • With the kind of developments in infrastructure taking place in Asia and other parts of the world, there is a greater need to reflect on the developments in research and practice.

The scope of the journal encompasses a broad spectrum of Geotechnical Engineering and contributions in the form of research articles, reviews, technical notes and discussions on the following identified areas are invited.

  • Site characterization
  • Engineering behaviour of soils and rocks
  • Constitutive behaviour of soils and rocks
  • Foundations
  • Earth retaining structures
  • Dams
  • Soil dynamics
  • Underground excavations and tunneling
  • Earthquake geotechnical engineering
  • Geo-environmental engineering
  • Ground improvement
  • Geosynthetics
  • Rock mechanics
  • Case histories in geotechnical engineering practice
  • Innovative concepts and developments
